Description:Funded by EPSRC with a total of £12M over 5 years, SPHERE is building an interdisciplinary team of over 50 researchers, students, academics and clinicians to address the real world health and wellbeing challenges that face 21st Century societies. SPHERE is a partnership between the University of Bristol, University of Southampton, University of Reading, Bristol City Council, the NHS in Bristol, Knowle West Media Centre, IBM and Toshiba. Working within Work Package 2 of the SPHERE project (although they will also collaborate and work if necessary with colleagues in other Work Packages), these RA posts will develop algorithms and associated models and software to perform computer vision and machine learning tasks. The tasks will include feature detection and tracking, deformable models, statistical modelling and analysis, the use of one or more cameras, including methods for tracking across multiple rooms, and many other relevant topics in machine vision. Successful applicants will have a strong track record of success at PhD-level or beyond in relevant areas (such as machine-vision) within computer science or electronics, but will also have the breadth, vision and ambition needed to work day-to-day with some of the UK’s most distinguished clinicians and clinical scientists. It is expected that interviews will be held in late August, early September with a start date of October 2013 for 3 years in the first instance.
